5:09 pm
own our schools. so that's what we need. we need something new, not the same old same old. >> reporter: now, the union argues that use of standardized testing doesn't take in factors like poverty or recent moves or violence in a neighborhood, something they say that the school system needs to take into consideration. in chicago, steve brown, fox news. >> president obama got a slight bump in the polls after the democratic national convention. coming up tonight, why the race for the white house is in a virtual dead heat with election day less than two months away. hear that? gunshots. it's dramatic dash cam video showing the heroic actions of police officers involved in a temple shooting in wisconsin. and judgment day for five men who played a role in one of the worst mass shootings in d.c. hit. we're live outside the courtroom with reaction. gary. >> hey, shawn. still good stuff weather-wise. you know what?

5:12 pm
the presidential candidates stayed away from negative attacks on this 9/11 anniversary. today republican mitt romney spoke about the attacks at a campaign stop in nevada.
5:13 pm
>> we remember those who died. we marvel at the courage of those who stormed the cockpit when they became aware of the ma leaf lent purpose of the hijackers. we hold up in prayer the family and friends of the victims. >> romney criticized the president for defense cuts scheduled to take place next year. the republican and democratic national conventions are over but the race for the white house is still very close. a washington post abc nuts poll found among likely voters president obama and mitt romney are essentially tied, but a broader view shows the want a six-point lead. aaron, thanks for being here. >> thanks for having me. >> let's get back to the numbers. the post abc poll has the president up by six points. mitt romney's camp saythat suga dnc. is that the case? >> i think that might be the
5:14 pm
case. the question coming out of conventions is always do these candidates get a bounce. mitt romney did not get much of a bounce. some polling has shown that president obama d. but at the same time, if you look at our poll, the responses were much more favorable for obama on friday than they were on saturday and sunday. >> and why do you think that is? even though the polls show the president improved his overall standings, what else did you guys find out, like maybe how voters feel about his stance on issues? >> the reason the president is ahead is largely because people like him personally. i think the jobs report was a big reality check. it was another poor report. five straight months, in fact, in which we've had reports that haven't been good for president obama. i think that that put things back into reality and maybe people started to get about the good speeches of the convention from people like bill clinton. >> let's talk about mitt romney. you mentioned did he not see that typical bounce a candidate seas following the convention but he is still in a virtual tie with the president in many
5:15 pm
of the polls. is that? >> this is the way the race is going to be from here until election day. i don't think anybody is going to have this race outside the margin of error through november 6th. it's just because there's very few undecided voters. our poll showed that just 13% of people said they could change their mind. that's very small, historically speaking. it speaks to the fact that basically these two candidates are really trying to turn out their bases, and they think that's the path to victory. >> we've been hearing from republican insiders and pundits who are essentially, you know, perplexed by the latest polls, and basically saying that, you know, in order to shut everyone up, what mitt romney needs to do is win. it almost seams like they don't have the faith in him as they're looking at these polls what. are you guys finding from this? >> any time something like this happens when polls move a few points, there's going to be some people who are second- guessing what's going on. i think on the right what we're seeing right now is people are second-guessing whether republicans should, in fact, go more conservative and really go all out in embracing kind of
5:16 pm
the paul ryan politics. they see the campaign instead kind of equivocating on things like entitlements and medicare cuts, and so i think that it's very normal for something like this to happen, but it's happened a number of times. >> you set's likely we will see these polls continue right down to the wire. how much weight should we be putting in these polls? >> it's good to keep an eye on where things are at at a given point in time. at the same time, these are just a snapshot in time. you need to look at the big picture. the head to head matchup doesn't always tell the whole story. there's a lot of campaign to be run still. >> it will be interesting to see how the polls are bouncing after we get to the debates. aaron blake, thanks for coming in. >> thank you. >> hogwash, i haven't heard that wynn awhile. the cost of employer- sponsored family health insurance premiums increased at a much lower rate than hat in
5:17 pm
the past. the annual survey found rates rose only 4% this year. that is compared to a 9% jump from just the year before but experts warn rates may climb much higher next year, possibly spiking up as much as 7%. no hogwash about today's weather. it was gorgeous. a live look outside over northwest d.c. >> i was going to say, this weather is phenomenal. you're from the west coast. i was there over the weekend. this is like san francisco weather. it's phenomenal. >> including the chilly nights and the chilly morning. this morning i was turning off the ac, gary. i haven't done that in awhile. >> somebody in my house left a window open. freezing this morning. >> pull up the blank. >> it was so cold. temperatures easily out there were dropping into the 40s pretty much area wide outside of town. here in town we got down to 57 degrees. i think we're going to be right back there overnight tonight. temperatures out in the suburbs not forecast to be quite as chilly as it was this morning,
5:18 pm
but it's still going to be cool. and, by the way, it was probably me that left the window open. here's what it looks like out there now. this is basically the mid- atlantic all the way through to the mississippi here. and you don't find much in the way of cloud cover at all. that's because not only do we have a surface area area of high pressure but we also have an upper area of high pressure, and that just means it's going to stay nice because it is hard to budge these upper level systems. couple clouds. nothing big. good news, this trend continues. now, we may get a little bit warmer over the next few days, but it doesn't look like we have any big changes coming our way. maybe as we start getting into the weekend. that's, unfortunately, i think when this pattern starts breaking down. temperature now 78 in town. frederick 79. gaithersburg has cooled back to the lower 70s. culpeper 77 degrees. this is the evening forecast, but you pretty much already
5:19 pm
knew it. sunny skies at 7:00. on the cool side by 11:00. here in town 66, lower 60s out in the suburbs. again, chilly overnight, and at least for the next couple of days we're good. here's my tease four. we've made a few adjustments to the weekend forecast. >> i don't know, is that a good tease or a bad tease? >> don't know yet. that's why we call at tease, shawn. on these days like this where it's so, let's be honest, kind of boring, it pays to put out a good tease so the viewers will stick around. >> absolutely. stick around. gary has something four coming up. >> more of that west coast weather. >> i hope so. >> fingers crossed. a teenage girl robbed in broad daylight. the suspect's weapon of choice? a taser. find out where it happened. plus, five men sentenced for their role in with of the worst shootings in d.c. history. the judge did not hold back. if you have a story idea, call the fox 5 tip line, easy
